Have just come across one of these construction spec with Perkins engine, relatively fresh.
Seeing as its almost weighing in at 9t and has stabilisers, would it be too big and cumbersome for general yard work, bit of bale chasing etc? Wouldnt need to do any road work. Extra reach would often be handy though!
Anybody run one and any issues with dump angles on bucket etc???
Thanks as always....

Yep,have one here.very very reliable and good machine for us.loads corn well although as you mention it only just h has enough crowd and dump angle.very steady the road but always gets the job done.keep the boom shimm ed up well s o it doesn't wreck the hoses in the boom.ours had been 're done before we bought it and we've done 3000 hrs with no trouble with them.very very good and very veryhandy.biggest problem is other people wanting to use it and being brave enough to tell them no!

Thanks for the reply👍
Can I ask if yours also has the Perkins non turbo engine and if so do you find her 'sluggish' with only 80 odd hp?? Had been looking for a manual transmission but I presume the powershift was pretty well proven by then (it's a 2005 model)

Yes,ours is 52 reg.Perkins non turbo.yes feels very sluggish but better once you get the oil warm.no prizes for speed but always gets the job done.ours is powershif t and have had the four speed powershif t in many different machines ,backhoe, and other teleporters by jc b and it's never been problematic.at that age it's a good well built jc b with not a lot to give trouble.service the front axle well with the correct oil so you don't get brake trouble if your using it hard as you tend to ride with foot on brake pedal although you shouldnt!powershif t is nice and quiet too ,no gearstick rattle.if your used to a farm special it will feel slow but will do the required and is very handy for reaching things.can hea p sugar beet to a ridiculous height,maybe eight metres or so deep once you get used to it and push it up the side of the pile .brilliant for building maintenance and construction.

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
